When I was but a little child 

And life was newer, sweeter, mild 

My mother taught me many things 

About the joy that kindness brings 

And why respect’s a two way street 

When often strangers chance to meet 

The earth is precious needing care 

With trust the virtue all must share !

There is a God, I know He lives

With all the blessings that He gives

He is my Saviour and my Friend

Who’ll stick with me until the end.

I have no fear, He’ll be with me

Until I reach Eternity

I often wonder how He knows

About my fingers and my toes,

My every thought and every deed

My hopes, my dreams and every need

God is the answer to each prayer

I beg You Lord, be always there !

AMEN.

To find oneself alone at last

With memories of things now past

Of happy days and lazy times

Some foolishness, some silly rhymes

Or moments when tears cannot stop

As dreams we’ve had did a flip flop.

Tis strange how life’s misunderstood

In quite many a neighborhood

But we must carry on, you see

For that’s a part of destiny

The path that each one has taken

Leaves some winning,some forsaken !

 

 

AN ANGEL’S PROMISE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/05

The angels up in heaven cry

For all the babies that will die

Ere all their lives have yet begun

In agony as one by one

They feel the thrust of surgeon’s knife

Before the ending of each life.

Our dearest Lord,  have mercy on

These tiny victims that are gone

Help all who’ve suffered from the crimes

To rise again in kinder times

There find the promise of God’s love

And help from angels up above !

 

 

LIFE’S SYMPHONY (2019) 2019/03/01

I hear the music in my head

With words not always quite as clear

Since I arise from my small bed

All full of love and void of fear.

The world around us is a joy

Its grandeur overwhelms me so

Like all the comforts we employ

With all the treasure God may show.

The length of time and how we knew

However long, His mystery

No matter now what e’er we do

None may escape life’s symphony !

 

 

“IF I BE ALIVE” ( 2019 ) 2019/02/28

There was a man that I used to know

He was my gardener long ago

A man of honor and good intent

Who said exactly just what he meant.

True, I knew he was a man of God

And back in those days that was not odd

He went about his work with great ease

His goal in life was to help and please.

A kindly man full of deep respect

Not an inch of ground did he neglect

His parting words I can still recall

They never changed, no not once at all.

He taught me a lesson that does survive

” See you tomorrow, if I be alive ” !

 

THANK YOU, JOHN ATANASIO !

 

 

 

A SKY FULL OF CLOUDS (2019) 2019/02/27

Across the meadows of the sky

The scattered clouds are drifting by

Like puffs of cotton hung in space

All seeming to be out of place

The clouds diminish one by one

Until the skies of day are done !
